...good old Ballarat...

“I am quite sure one does not appreciate the city so much until he gets away to another land...”

Oh yes, don't we Ballarat-ites know that to be true? We all leave sooner or later, and sooner or later we all come back!  Sadly, for many of the ANZACs, the coming back wasnt possible, but as the buildup to the centenary of ANZAC Day shows, they never will be forgotten.

This letter was written by one of the troops directly to the Ballarat Courier, so that the people of Ballarat might know how "the boys" are faring ...
